View Full Version : DustyBoats on Eternal Patrol
11-12-2008, 09:52 AM
It's been a long time since I've been on the boards. I surely do miss it, but I've been tending to a shipmate who I met on this very forum and haven't felt much like playing the game during his illness. It was my hope that his health would improve and we would both return here to continue our silent service patrols together. However, that is not to be. I'm certain there are many here who will share in the loss of our shipmate.
The Reverend Anthony Miller (DustyBoats) of Her Majesty's Royal Navy, Distinguished Submariner, has lost his battle and is now in the hands of the Lord.
Unto the Almighty God we commend the soul of our brother departed, and we commit his body to the deep; in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection unto eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ; at whose coming in glorious majesty to judge the world, the sea shall give up her dead; and the corruptible bodies of those who sleep in him shall be changed, and made like unto his glorious body; according to the mighty working whereby he is able to subdue all things unto himself.
A fair wind and calm seas to my friend Tony.

Was he a member of the Submariner's Association in the UK?If not ,could anybody let me have a little more biographical information on him so I can post an obituary on The Submariners Association website.Many of his former shipmates may be unaware of his passing.

Thank you to everyone for your heartfelt condolences.
One last thing of note...
It was Tony's request to have his ashes delivered to the depths via a torpedo tube launch. The vessel to carry his ashes??? His hand made model submarine which was well over 6 feet long with working masts and periscope. One of many that he made over the years.
This guy lived, breathed, and quite litterally died submarines! I was very lucky to share a part of his remarkable life.
THE SUBMARINERS CREED:
"TO PERPETUATE THE MEMORY OF OUR SHIPMATES WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES IN THE PURSUIT OF THEIR DUTIES WHILE SERVING THEIR COUNTRY. THAT THEIR DEDICATION, DEEDS AND SUPREME SACRIFICE BE A SOURCE OF MOTIVATION TOWARDS GREATER ACCOMPLISHMENTS."
Regards to all,

I remember Tony here on SubSim, very nice fella. Being gone when this happened I missed the announcement of his passing on..
So, on the 2nd anniversary of Tony's passing, here's a salute to a real submariner. You may be gone Tony but you are not forgotten. RIP, dive deep, and may God keep you safe in his hands for eternity. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v64/GT182/sigpic336_1.gif
